The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps 47 million people obtain healthy food.

But SNAP fraud costs taxpayers over $2.6 billion each year, according to the Office of Management and Budget. Dishonest applicants use stolen or made-up identities, provide false documentation, lie on their applications or sell their vouchers. LexisNexis® Risk Solutions offers identity-driven solutions that successfully detect and prevent SNAP fraud.

LexisNexis Delivers

Vast Data Resources

Using public records from over 10,000 disparate sources resolves, verifies and authenticates applicant identity with 99.9% confidence.

Data Linking

Overlaying linking analysis to internal and external data unlocks connections and patterns that could suggest an applicant provided false information.

Risk Indicators

Flagging new SNAP applicants who may be involved in fraudulent behavior focuses on prevention versus the more costly pay-and-chase model.

Advanced Data Analytics

Continuous monitoring to detect anomalies or unusual patterns shines light on any potentially post-enrollment fraudulent behavior.

Program Integrity Measures

Incorporating fraud, waste and abuse detection processes into everyday tasks defends program integrity without compromising efficiency or adding risk.

Achieve These Results

Eliminate Fraud

Detect fraudulent SNAP applications by verifying whether the identity exists and whether it belongs to the person claiming that identity.

Prevent Double-dipping

Participate in a Health and Human Services national clearinghouse that ensures SNAP applicants don’t collect benefits across states.

Decrease SNAP Costs

Reduce wasteful abuse of public funds spent on improper payments from intentional fraud as well as unintentional errors.

Streamline Operations

Conduct business smoothly and efficiently even with multi-layer processes in place to verify identities and protect against fraud.

Stop SNAP Trafficking

Identify and track SNAP beneficiaries and retailers that illegally exchange food stamps for cash.
